PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

  • Vantiv, LLC, Dallas, Texas (working remotely from Omaha, Nebraska)
  • 2010 to present
  • Web Designer
  • I provide web design services and graphics for various internal and external clients on multiple web sites.

    • vip.vantiv.com (formerly www.tnbcard.com), a password secured client support web site. After the merger of Vantiv and TNB Card Services I updated the site to display our new corporate branding.
    • www.gotomycard.com is a tool used by our financial institution clients to give their customers the ability to manage their credit card accounts. Credit union clients can have their portion of this web site customized with their corporate branding; my responsibility is to create style sheets for both mobile and desktop that add the client's brand elements to the layout so that each client's customer experiences the branding for that particular financial institution. This site will soon be responsive using Bootstrap framework.
    • www.designitphotocard.com, a site that gives clients the ability to upload their own photos in order to customize their credit card plastic.

    Skills Required: HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, Javascript, Jquery, classic ASP, ASP .Net using Visual Studio, web page design and layout.

  • Town North Bank, Dallas, Texas
  • 2008 to 2010
  • Web Designer
    • www.tnbonline.com - Town North Bank had purchased a web site design from a third-party; I was hired as the bank's first official web designer in order to implement the new design, which included content regrouping and organization. As part of this effort, I also optimized all graphics used in the site. After the web site was taken to .Net, I learned how to use master pages for layout, and .Net controls for repeating navigation elements.
    • www.townnorthbank.com - Company seniors referred to this as the 'corporate web site'. I updated navigation and other data as requested from the business and created a new Flash banner to replace an outdated one. The site's layout, created by a third party, was already decent; I added a few more features such as Google maps for location and updated the contact form with Javascript validation. This site was eventually consolidated with www.tnbonline.com.
    • www.tnbcard.com - This was the TNB Card Services division secured web site for registered clients to get access to the latest marketing promotions and materials. I spent a large portion of my time implementing marketing campaigns (graphics and layout) and creating web forms with Javascript validation for email submission. I updated the site's underlying code structure and layout from its older table-based design to a modern div/CSS layout; in a later change I updated the site navigation, adding drop-down sub-menus and fly-out elements, resulting in positive client reviews for ease of use.

    I created graphics for the web and a few for print, also Flash and GIF animations plus banner and tower ads for both marketing departments to support various marketing campaigns as they were requested. On occasion I updated the layout of an email template used regularly to send client information. I also acted as "best practices" web consultant for both bank and card services marketing departments.

    Skills Required: HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, Javascript, JQuery, classic ASP, ASP .Net using Visual Studio, web page design and layout.
